To finish up our postcard series, I thought I’d throw a curveball: a postcard on the Grand Island bridges.
Another teacher story: one of my teachers (different from the Hilton one) once said that there were no bridges connecting Grand Island to the mainland until the 1960s.
I mean, he’s wrong, but the second set of bridges was completed in 1965, so…partial credit?
This particular postcard was mailed! It’s postmarked 1937, and was sent to some Mrs. Cook in Ohio.
I just appreciate the fact that someone stopping by Niagara Falls would send a postcard of the Grand Island bridges. It’s so industrially specific.
Hopefully seeing this postcard makes your commute a little better, since we know about the traffic on those bridges.
Next month, we’re going to have a new series…stay tuned!
